The San Clemente girls volleyball team added another staple win on Tuesday, Sept. 7.
The Tritons swept Edison in the San Clemente gym, 25-17, 25-17, 25-10, to move to 11-5 overall on the season.
It was San Clemente’s second straight sweep victory over a Sunset Conference opponent following a home sweep of Corona del Mar, 25-19, 25-16, 25-12, on Thursday, Sept. 2.
The wins over Edison and Corona del Mar were a strong bounce back for San Clemente after losing a five-set battle at Newport Harbor on Aug. 31. Newport Harbor, ranked No. 2 in CIF-SS Division 3, took the opening set, 25-23, but San Clemente won an equally tight second set, 25-22. The Sailors and Tritons again traded close sets, with Newport Harbor winning the third, 25-20, and San Clemente taking the fourth, 25-22. The fifth set went the distance and just a bit more, but Newport Harbor earned the win, 16-14.
San Clemente also went 3-2 at the California Challenge Tournament at La Costa Canyon on Aug. 27-28. The Tritons earned wins over La Jolla Country Day, Clovis North and San Marcos.
The Tritons are next in action on Thursday, Sept. 9, at Mission Viejo and play in the Dave Mohs Tournament at Edison on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 10-11. San Clemente opens South Coast League play at Trabuco Hills on Tuesday, Sept. 14, and is next home on Wednesday, Sept. 15, against Beckman.
